Everyone at some point have botched a move. Even Undertaker Shawn Michaels Stone Cold EVERYONE!!! So since adr should be buried because of a botch let's do it to everyone that has ever botched...Guess that will be the end of pro wrestling.

This.

You have to remember that English is his second language so don't expect CM Punk level promos from him...

Re: Alberto Del Rio trying to improve on the mic

Call me crazy, but I think Del Rio would connect more if he just spoke all his promos in Spanish. He seems like he's trying to follow a script too much when he speaks in English, and if he just uses his tone properly and says the names of whatever superstar he's talking about, he can draw a reaction from the crowd. Plus it would be hilarious and unique.

Re: Alberto Del Rio trying to improve on the mic

He's a lot better as a face at microphone. Hopefully he will improve more and thanks God he gave up these "it's my destiny" and "you already know that" catch phrases.

Favorite wrestlers: CM Punk, The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho

Del Rio's terrible on the mic, and the promo on SD, while maybe his best, was still only decent. I don't know how an all-Spanish promo would sound from him, and it wouldn't really work in WWE, but due to his obvious limitations in English, it's really effecting his promos and making them damn near impossible to listen to.

The only two things he has going for him are one, the fact he draws in a demographic that WWE doesn't really have anyone else to reach to that's better since Mysterio's almost done himself, and two, his wrestling ability. But due to the first thing I mentioned, he's been getting pushed hard, which is fair enough, and tbh I'd much prefer he get pushed hard on Smackdown than on Raw.

I'm watching you...

Re: Alberto Del Rio trying to improve on the mic

The more mic time he gets the better he will probably get. He seems more conformable talking about baby-face stuff rather than heel stuff.

Same with guys like Rey & Jeff. They weren't any Rocks or Flairs on the mic, but they were good enough to get their point across, and get the crowd cheering for them.

Re: Alberto Del Rio trying to improve on the mic

Del Rio's difficulty with the English language is what makes him unique on the mic.

That's called an accent. When will you people realize that accent =/= Bad mic skills

Just because English is not his first language doesn't mean he's a bad talker. He always gets his point across and doesn't mumble any words.
